Hi all. I'm new to this site and wanted to introduce myself. I am 29 yo, married and have 3 beautiful children...all of which were unplanned, while I was in college and before I was married. Now that my husband and I are married we want to officially plan to conceive a child, but I'm overly worried it will take a long time and I am NOT a patient person when it comes to things I want. I got pregnant with each of my kids on some form of bc, the pill, the patch and the ring...I was pretty sure my body just rejected bc but the mirena worked and I didn't have any periods, so I was happy with it. I never had any problems with it, no cramping, no depression, no weight gain...and no unplanned pregnancies.
I had my first 3 kids in 4 1/2 years, my oldest is now 7 and my baby is 3, middle one is 5. I got my Mirena put in June 2009 after my youngest was born and I just had it removed on April 3. I stopped having periods with it, but still got that menstral like feeling every month, if that makes sense. I had some light spotting on the 2nd and 3rd day after removal.
I have done a lot of research and lurked on boards like these and educated myself on what I need to do to know when I ovulate so that we would have the best chances. I know some people say their doctors told them to wait a month or two to let their uterine line build back up, but mine so go for it...no need to wait. So my Mirena came out on a Tuesday and that same Friday and Saturday I got a smiley face on my clearblue easy fertility monitor. It seemed weird to me that it came so quickly, but I had my first "menstral like" feelings (confirmed by my DH as he said I was being moody and B***chy) on March 27th...so technically that would make that cycle day 11 and 12. We did the bd from the 3rd through the 9th and then again 13th and 15th.
Today I have had some brownish spotting, not a ton just enough to have to wear a pantyliner because I work white pants to work
maybe its implantation bleeding, maybe it's some side effect of mirena coming out. I took a HPT but it was negative, but I'm thinking it was too soon, just anxious.
I would love to hear other peoples stories about life after the mirena. I've heard so many bad ones that it makes me nervous!
If anyone has stuck with this story long enough to read it all, thanks ;)
